The Land Rover was conceived by the Rover Company back in 1948 as an answer to the famous Willys Jeep, which was used throughout the Second World War. The Land Rover soon became an institution and an ambassadress of the British automotive industry across the world. Almost immediately, the potential of this small and agile multi-use vehicle was recognised and the groups of its users spread to the military, fire services, fuel companies; in practice to anyone who needed to go off-road. It didn’t take long for the success of the Land Rover to develop and diversify into numerous versions, bringing to life an entire family of variants, after which many body builders created even more special series, often single examples. Land Rover was able to save itself from the serious crisis that hit the British motor industry in the ‘70s, evolving through to today with the Range Rover and the Defender family vehicles. There was no way such important vehicles couldn’t be in our series on the “Vehicles that made History” in a book that covers the genesis of the Willys Jeep to the various series that have spelt out the production of this legendary vehicle, including all the military versions and those built overseas.

FIAT 1800 2100 2300

The Fiat 1800 and 2100 (and later the 2300) represent the flagship models the Turin-based firm offered in the mid-Sixties to a clientele looking for a large, elegant, robust and reliable car at a price undercutting the contemporary Lancias and Alfa Romeos. Along with the classic saloon versions, a modern station-wagon and a ceremonial long-wheelbase variant were also offered. They were all powered by a refined straight-six. The range was extended in 1961 with the splendid and powerful 2300 S Coupé bodied by Ghia, one of the most successful and attractive Fiat sports cars, while the following year it was the turn of the more economical four-cylinder 1500 L. This book tells the story of the birth and development of this significant family of Fiat cars, presenting the technical issues and historical details of the various versions produced. Equipped with detailed technical files and illustrated with numerous contemporary images, the book also provides a very useful guide to restoration and invaluable maintenance tips.

The Lancia Beta was inaugurated in 1972 with the launch of the saloon. The range was expanded three years later by the addition of the “Beta Montecarlo”, a model that soon became part of the Italian motoring history. Introduced at the 1975 Turin Motor Show, the new coupé immediately attracted public interest and admiration for its authentic sporting character, confirmed by its assertive and fascinating body, designed by Pininfarina, and in its two-litre, 118 hp engine. It was no coincidence that the newborn enjoyed a busy racing career: the Group 5 turbo version even enabled Lancia to beat Porsche and win the World Championship for Makes in both 1980 and 1981. This book is entirely devoted to the history of the Beta Montecarlo, covering the technical and stylistic evolution of the various series and, naturally, the coupé’s successful motor racing life – a book that just had to become one of the series focusing on cars that have made history.
